From PopKorn Kat :

"Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers" is a movie I have mixed feelings on. Like the marketing tagline says, it's not a reboot. It uses the "Rescue Rangers" title and show as more of a jumping-off point. Characters from that show make a few appearances, but prior knowledge of it is not required to understand the film. The film presents Chip and Dale as "animated actors" in the vein of *Who Framed Roger Rabbit*, but tonally it takes a different approach. The two meet as children, star in "Rescue Rangers", have a falling-out, reunite years later, and are tasked with rescuing "Rescue Rangers" co-star Monterey Jack from a studio that specializes in producing animated mockbusters. Great premise, right? Well, I feel the execution could've been better. Let's get the positive aspects out of the way first. I love the medium blending going on here. Stop-motion, 2D animation, CGI, and live-action characters all seamlessly interact with each other. Uli Meyer was the animation director here, and he did an incredible job. There was clearly lots of love put into the animation. About the only character whose style I wasn't a fan of was Chip's. They attempt to replicate hand-drawn 2D animation with a cel-shaded 3D model, and while I'm sure it was for budgetary reasons, it doesn't look the best in action. I'm also glad they didn't have Chip and Dale doing their typical high-pitched voice routine throughout the film. I'd imagine it'd get old fast. The biggest reason as to why I'm conflicted about this film is that it tiptoes precariously between being an affectionate tribute to the animation industry and 100 minutes of Disney bragging to the audience "look at all these characters we got the rights to use!" Here's the thing: Roger Rabbit's strength rested not on its numerous cameos, but on its story and original characters. Rescue Rangers goes a bit too far in the "hey, reference! Laugh!" direction. Then there's the main villain himself: "Sweet Pete", a washed-up, grown-up Peter Pan. I'm far from opposed to giving previously wholesome characters troubled pasts or futures, but given the sad fate of Bobby Driscoll, Peter Pan's voice actor in the 1953 Disney animated film, it comes off as tasteless. The satire falls short of giving the middle finger to Disney's practices. For as how "unexpected" a film like this coming from Disney is, I still get the feeling that they couldn't go too far, lest they bite off the hand that finances them. Overall, "Rescue Rangers" is an alright film that will likely entertain kids, but the criticism of the industry is surface-level and obviously tongue-in-cheek.
